President Barack can take a joke — and he knows how to deliver them, too.

This time it was at the expense of White House Correspondents' Association dinner headliner Jay Leno.

Obama dinged Leno as "the only person whose ratings fell more than mine."

Obama also said he was glad he was before Leno.

Obama told the 3,000-strong mix of celebrities, elected officials, political appointees and journalists that "we've all seen what happens when you take the time slot after Leno."
